    That's how I learned and got (a little) better! I also went with a combination of styles early on.

    Aiden,

    pretty good for a first try, i know the feeling of figuring out the program. From my understanding, lakes usually come from rivers as a general rule, although, many times the rivers can be underground. I think that rivers add a bit of something, that adds to the landscape though. i am still pretty new, and my rivers are ever evolving.

    the mountains seem a bit stiff. as a buddy of mine puts it, they need "greeblies" crevices, break off mountains etc.

    I like the relief you added, definitely adds something

    lol,

    its all about the greeblies. I really like the southern mountains surrounding the desert. definitely taking on more personality.

    believe me, i am no expert by any means. I find that as i get advice and work on my world, i wanna go back and redo others. Its almost an unbreakable loop.

    keep going and don't give up. i'm finding that I enjoy making maps even if i don't have a specific purpose for it.
